Looking for a Cisco tech


Recommended Posts

I have a client that has a Cisco PIX 501 firewall. It needs to be crushed ,reformatted back to factory, and fresh basic programming done.

No vpn stuff, a simple firewall, with 5 port forwarding’s.

I do not have a console cable or any experience working with the Cisco commands.

I’m looking to spend 100 to 140 for the job.

please email me at ccarpenter@futurenetaz.com

thank you for your time.

The Pix 501, 505 and 506 series are not that difficult and can be reset to factory defaults by PDM, access the console and type the following: Enter config mode... type "configure factory-default" and thats it. The rest is whatever he wants and a few more hours than I have to spare...Sorry! Hope you get someone to help you out even though I know this may not have helped you a bit. If I confused you more, my bad. :cone

no I understand you quite well

A: the reset to factory default via the PDM does not work. stalls out.

B: I do not have a factory console cable.


D: I have spend aobut 5 hours dicking around this device trying to learn and make it work. with no results.

I cant charge the client the 5 hours, so I have to call in a pro that will hammer it out within 60min.

My time is better spent (and better paid) by out sourcing this gig.

thanks for the advice tho
